Black-Type Beckons For Sizzling Bullet

Friday, 27th January 2017

Trainer Chris Waller will raise the bar with Sizzling Bullet after the well bred colt opened his account at Randwick yesterday. The 3YO son of Snitzel and VRC Oaks winner Hollow Bullet finished strongly to score a narrow but decisive 0.5 length win in a benchmark 69 handicap over 1800 metres. Waller said he would now sit down with the colt's ownership group to decide whether to target the autumn or winter carnival. "He will fit into some of the better staying races for sure," Waller told Sky Racing. "I'll have a talk to the team at Vinery and see how he is situated in terms of timing for the autumn or the winter." Bred by Arrowfield Stud, Sizzling Bullet was a $450,000 purchase at the 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney and is owned by a high profile syndicate that includes Vinery Stud - in whose green and white silks he races - Werrett Bloodstock, Raffles Thoroughbred Racing, and Rupert Legh, co-owner of star sprinter Chautauqua. Hollow Bullet (Tayasu Tsuyoshi-Beat the Bullet, by Bite the Bullet), who won 6 of her 27 starts including the Gr1 VRC Oaks and Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Stakes (now Vinery Stud Stakes), has hitherto had four foals to race, including Japanese winners Ranyroo (Redoute's Choice) and Hollow Crown (Hussonet).
